Next to the search bar in the bill of materials, there is a dropdown with 3 options, library, groups, and product.

BOM - Materials with Drop Down 1 - Products

Import is the first, and the default selection. To import from the library all you have to do is to start typing the component code/description in the search bar, and Bombyx will start to filter through the components within the library for you. Once you see the component you want to import, all you have to do is tap that item.

To edit information you’ve previously entered on a component, tap the ‘Edit’ icon on the bar of the component card.

To rearrange the order of the BOM components, tap the rearrange button, and on the right hand side a panel will appear with a list of all the components for that BOM type. Simple drag and drop the items into the order that you’d like.

If you want to reuse this component, as you’ve added this inside of a product, it won’t be readily available in the library, or in a group. To add it to the library tap the ‘add to library’ icon, and confirm the component number in the popup. If you change the number, it will stay the same inside the product you’re in, but the component will be copied to the library with the newly entered code.
